FileMaker Go App Maker - Issue with URL Calculation

I've been using the FileMaker Go App Maker 1.0.4 to create some profiles, one of which used the script parameter to perform a script.

 

When I clicked the icon on the home screen that was created by installing the profile it opened Safari but that was it - it didn't then open my FileMaker Go database on the device. I had a look at the URL that was generated by the FileMaker Go App Maker and it looked like this:

 

javascript:window.location='FMP://%7E/fileName'?script=scriptName

 

I believe there's an issue with the apostrophe that appears after the fileName, which should appear at the end of the script name.

 

I changed it to this format:

 

javascript:window.location='FMP://%7E/fileName?script=scriptName'

 

and it worked fine. The calculation in question is the SelectedFile::url.

 

Just wondering if anyone else has encountered this - would be surprised if I was the only one.
